Wollankstraße 57A-D, Berlin - Beatbox battle by Toni and Roberto.
In the course of recording I was interrupted by Roberto, Toni and Tyson, three yound teenagers from the neigbourhood. Two of them turned out to be astonishingly skilled beat box artists who immediately engaged in a 'beatbox battle'.
Recorded for 'Soundmap Soldiner Kiez' (see http://aporee.org/maps/projects/soundmap_soldiner_kiez ), a contribution to the project KiezKulturNetz (see http://www.kkn.kritische-kunst.org/ ).
[I used the Hi-MD-recorder Sony MZ-NH900 with external microphone Beyerdynamic MCE 82]
